Symposium: European approaches towards a Sustainable Digitalization

The International Symposium "European approaches towards a Sustainable Digitalization"  is a joint initiative from three separate projects at the nexus of Digitalization and Sustainability that are currently being carried out by Einstein Center Digital Future/TU Berlin (represented by Prof. Tilman Santarius), Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IÖW) and Leuphana University. The Opening Panel will introduce the issue and the scope of the Symposium and three parallel breakout groups will discuss the European approach from different perspectives: 

  • with a view to policy-makers, the symposium will discuss which enablers are needed at a social, organizational, and individual learning level for a sustainable digital transformation;
  • with a view to science-policy and scientists from all disciplines, the symposium will bring together expert researchers from European academia and think tanks on the nexus of digitalization and sustainability and discuss potential cooperation with other initiatives;
  • with a view to representatives from civil society organizations, the symposium wants to open the discussion how collaborative action as experienced within the German “Bits & Bäume” movement can be brought to the EU level in order to join forces for shaping the ongoing policy processes.
